About the Author
I'm Stephan, a Linux user with a passion for open-source, UI/UX design, and exploring what makes fiction work.
In my spare time, I focus on (and write about):
- Programming (mainly in Python and Rust)
- Retrocomputing (mostly DOS)
- Reading and Reviewing Fiction
- The odd bit of UI/UX design or literary theory

The Out-of-Touch Autism-Spectrum Shut-in Social Survival Guide For People Who Are Paranoid About People, Parties, And Other P Words
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it, but I tend to panic when I badly misjudge how something I said will be taken and then fail to recover. I recently learned that this is apparently called Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria. and I … Continue reading
While I was experimenting with adding nlprule-based grammar-checking to my spell-checked QPlainTextEdit subclass (not yet polished enough to share, but there’s a cut-down proof of concept for the nlprule integration on StackOverflow if you want it), I ran into a … Continue reading
